shirt, this hurts. RIP Ghost Rider


A legend among rock stars. His work was just mind boggling. Listening to him you thought he had 6 arms.

This explains why he left Rush.

"Another genius has left the planet. Not enough can be said about the talent and influence of Neil Peart. As a musician he was unparalleled, blasting open huge doors into the realms of new percussive stratospheres. As a lyricist he was like the Ray Bradbury of rock, penning rhymes that evoke imagery both cerebral and tactile. As a friend he was a pensive, sharp-witted intellect whom I looked up to and admired greatly. I was very fortunate to have played with him, laughed with him and rode with him at excessive speeds in one of his many exotic vehicles. I'm still trying to fathom how greatly he will be missed."

The last date of the European leg of the Roll The Bones tour. I'd given Neal my fly fishing bandana after one of our backstage jams.

Greatest video all time.
Oof. I hoped we’d be able to go 24 hours before having to see that.

But what’s awesome is the Moving Pictures videos that are just raw footage of them recording in 1980 in the snowed-in the Quebec mountains.

When I was younger I liked to sing the chorus - now I much prefer to just do the “subdivisions” part.

Nice live clip here from 1990:

Damn, I'm sorry to hear this. Rush 2112 and Hemispheres blasting through the Jensen Tri-axials of the '71 Camaro or Altec 7 Series 2 in the dorm fueled many a literal and figurative trip in my high school and early college years. We saw the band 3 times in concert and they did not disappoint. It was only later I truly appreciated how gifted Neil Peart was as a drummer and lyricist.

Be well on your journey, and keep the beat going.
